resign in 600 years. pope francis the pope will be installed formally on tuesday. vice president joe biden will lead the historic delegation. we get more now from michael sean winters of the national catholic reporter. the first obvious question is, who is he? >> some of us are all scrambling. i think he was a surprise choice in part because of his age. what we've learned is he's a very simple and humble man who, when he became the archbishop of buenos aires chose not to live in in big mansion but got a small apartment. he takes public transportation and did away with the limousine. he's obviously conservative and i think you'll see none of the candidates were what we in america would consider doctrinal liberals. most importantly he's from latin america and for the last 50 years the issue the latin american bishops have been dealing with is what is the preferential option for the poor mean and trying to wrestle with that on theologically but also practically. is it going to be just words or is it really going to galvanize the church to care for the poor. >> pelley: was it also import

president and joe biden and democrats after newtown and these tragedies were disappointed. they learned this week that a an assault weapons ban won't be included in the bill. that high capacity milks won't be included. they'll get votes but those will probably go down. background checks is a big issue the white house. harry reid is saying it will be included in the bill means that a democratic place holder -- that there has been a lot of negotiations over background checks with conservative republicans. stloz failed so far. harry reid is saying this is going to be in the base bill we put on the floor. republicans, if you want that out, negotiate with us because this bill if it's going to pass is going to pass with some form of strengthened background checks in it. this is our hard position. the white house is going to be pleased with that, of course that makes you wonder later what can the conservative house actually get passed. >> woodruff: so a helping hand for the senate majority leader? >> for gun control advocates, absolutely. after some disappointment. >> warner: todd zwil
